  • We loved it here. Our campsite was an amazing view of the water. South Carolina State parks have so many amazing parks. Very different from GA. They pick up your trash, you can use canoes and John boats for free. All sites have water and electricity. There were so many bath houses around the park. The whole park was very well maintained.
  • We had a wonderful time! The staff were kind and helpful. The facilities were clean and modern. The Hidden Falls trail was well worth the effort. The park is conveniently located to several quaint towns for dining, shopping and exploring. We are already planning a return trip!
